Here are 11 factors to consider when buying a mattress or bed
It must always be supportive, we dont do soggy. We sell mattresses with comfortable lumber support and beds that remain flat to fully support your mattresses. All our mattresses are double sided, lasting twice as long as single sided mattresses, plus they are far more comfortable - year after year.
Limited budget? Whatever the amount you spend with us, you will always receive better value for your money. The best mattresses you can buy cost a lot less from us.
A free home trial is the only way you will really know if a mattress suits you. We've been offering 'free trials' for over 17 years, its a safe and accurate way to know that a mattress suits you. Your home trail also includes our our mattresses, beds and furniture.
Ours is a money back proposition (as opposed to a forced credit towards other in-store products); complete with our 'no quibbles' free return collection. A proper free trial on all our mattresses, beds and furniture.
Built to last
A mattress can not be 'rolled in a box' or be a 'single sided, no-turn mattress' and give lasting support: all our mattresses are double sided mattresses, conveniently delivered into the room of your choice, free of charge. A double sided mattress will last twice as long as a single sided mattress (and it's more comfortable).
Natural fillers and covers
None of the sleeping layers within our mattresses include any foams (plastic), latex (rubber) or 'cooling gels' (mumbo jumbo for plastic).
They do however contain Natural mattress covers and fillers which always help you sleep better, cooler in the summer and warm during the winter.
Foam and latex mattresses often claim that being protested by machines is a sign of quality. The fact is, the 'roller testing' is conducted without the endless hours of body heat endured by any mattress - within 2 years foam & latex mattress layers begin to crumble and lump up due to body heat. The simulated sleep roller tested mattresses have only been tested over a matter of 48 hours with rollers that do not give continuous pressure, unlike a mattress in normal use, which will receive over 24,000 hours of consistent pressure and heat from the human body. The highly acclaimed tests that are conducted and bragged about by the "Award winning mattresses" only prove durability in the first short period of a mattresses life. Roller tests in fact give very positive results for foam and foam highbred mattress products which unfortunately masks the fact that they deliver very poor quality of support over any reasonable time, and that people tend to overheat whilst sleeping on them. Our quality mattress springs, fillers and covers last much longer and deliver a much higher level of the properties required for good nights; honouring the guarantees that they promise.
Asthma, skin allergies and toxic fungi : foam (plastic) is non porous and therfore traps air, perspiration and humidity. This in turn generates a hot, damp breeding ground for bacteria, especially as our minuscule skin scales do not travel through foams and remain trapped within this toxic breeding ground. This is bad for us and our immediate environment in so many ways. Virtually all of the mattresses made worldwide now use foam layers, but not ours! Latex, particularly "natural latex " is being heavily championed as a foam alternative (Please read below) but it is only minimally better than foam, reflexe foam, memory foam et cetera. Sprung and natural fillers are by far the best choice.
"Natural" Latex is Rubber and is absolutly not natural. It requires many poisonous and toxic chemicals and chemical processes, delivering the same negative realities as the foam mattresses mentioned above. The myth that it is biodegradable in land-fills is also nonsence. Tests have shown that latex takes over 150 years to biodegrade in landfill conditions.
We use only 100% cotton covers, natural fire retardents, proper quality springs, natural pourus fillers and traditional craftmanship. Our mattresses give years of cool, supportive and comfortable sleep. They all are double sided, lasting twice as long as single sided mattresses and are more comfortable. The same applies to our sturdy beautiful beds. Built to last using solid wood and Ply, the natural finishes are VOCs safe and protected with a long lasting quality finish.
Beds are in the 40 night trial too! All with free delivery, assembly and returns (to most of southern U.K.)
